Volunteering

 

JFFS offers many ways to get involved in the community. Whether you are interested in working with children; helping the elderly live independently and with dignity; providing nourishing food to individuals and families at risk; organizing community programs or events; fundraising or supporting the community here and in Israel in countless other ways, there is a volunteer opportunity waiting for you. Join us in our mission of tikkun olam, a Hebrew phrase that means “to heal the world”. Don't see what you are looking for? Contact us (Volunteer@JFFS.org) about starting a new volunteer initiative!
